“The Vanishing Game will drive you along a shocking path fraught with hints of the paranomrla and the sadistic. . . . The perfect example of a YA fiction that makes the cross over into adult fiction.” ―A Bookish Libraria
“A gripping mystery . . . impossible to put down. The reader races to keep up with the plot only to get walloped by a mind-blowing twist ending that turns the entire story upside down.” ―VOYA
“This book has twists and turns galore. Part corporate espionage thriller, part paranormal horror story, there are also elements of mystery and romance.” ―Library Media Connection--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Jocelyn and her twin brother Jack were each other's rocks. They could only count on each other with no father, an unfit mother, and growing up in the foster care system. Now, Jack is dead and Jocelyn is all alone. When she receives a letter from "Jason December", the code name her brother used when they were children, she knows her brother must still be alive. Only one other person from their past knows about the code name: Noah, a boy they were fostered with at creepy Seale House.
Jocelyn travels back to the city where Seale House ominously waits and to the last place she saw Noah. Seale House is creepier than ever and she thinks someone is following her as she works out all of the clues Jack left her.
The premise of The Vanishing Game, written in the first person from Jocelyn's point-of-view, was really clever, though I did not realize it until the end. And this is really one of those books that you have to withhold judgement on until the very end.
Jocelyn receives her first clue from Jack in the mail at her new foster family's home and it leads her to more clues and to Noah and Seale House where they lived in hell. Jocelyn was a complex character, even more than she seemed, as was Noah. They both have secrets and Jack's clues bring them together and help them discover those secrets. I was really invested in the characters.
But before that...I was thinking The Vanishing Game was just okay. Until...the clues kept coming and I was led on the same chase as Jocey and Noah. There was a big reveal in chapter 24 that made things really interesting. I actually thought, oh snap! Haha! Later on, there was another big reveal that was even more shocking. I became more and more engrossed and when things were revealed at the end, I was shocked and amazed. It was really cleverly done.
Recommended for readers sixteen and older who enjoy mysteries and thrillers with a bit of paranormal activity.

The book started well, was mysterious and exciting. But the characters and there communications could have been more interesting. And I personally did not like the ending.
